V&A CAFE


I feel like I've been repeating myself over and over again, but just in case someone hasn't heard that yet, The V&A is my favourite museum in London, to which I have been hundreds of time, so imagine my amazement when, while surfing on the internet, I accidentally discovered that it's also a home to the world's oldest museum restaurant with beautiful and majestic period rooms. 

Located just behind the main courtyard, the place welcomes museum goers with three different tea rooms, Morris, Gamble and Poynter. Apparently, they look almost the same as in the mid-nineteenth century when they were first opened. High vaulted ceilings, tiled walls, stained glass and ceramic pillars reflect the taste of Victorian era.

The cafe offers a nice selection of hot and cold dishes, salads, sandwiches and pastries. The choice for vegans is unfortunately pretty limited (didn't find any sweet vegan options) but the stuffed sweet potato that you can see below was delish!

Vegan London #1 // Ethos, Fitzrovia


I pretty often receive comments and messages in which I am asked to recommend places in London where you can find yummy vegan food so I almost feel like I am on a mission (a very pleasurable mission I have to admit!) to try a lot of different options London offers.

Two weeks ago, me and my friend Natalia went to Ethos Restaurant, which is located on Eastcastle Street, just off Oxford Street. It's a vegetarian self-service buffet with plenty of  vegan options and a pay-by-weight concept that specializes in diverse dishes from around the world. 

I paid over £14 for my plate which I found a bit expensive but the food I chose was very delicious and flavorful. A bit lukewarm but I didn't mind that. Everything was clearly labelled thus much easier for people with specific dietary requirements and allergies. The service was also brilliant. We were served by a lovely and very attentive person. I loved the neutral interior with lots of plants. Surprisingly, they have a lot of vegan dessert options too but we were too full to be tempted to try one but I will be definitely back soon!

Thank you Natalia for great pictures of me and Filip and a lovely company!
